Official Title
Phase IIa Study Exploring the Safety and Efficacy of Convalescent Plasma From Recovered COVID-19 Donors Collected by Plasmapheresis as Treatment for Hospitalized Subjects With COVID-19 Infection
Brief Summary

- This is a single arm phase IIa study of convalescent plasma for the treatment of individuals hospitalized with COVID-19 infection. - Subjects will be considered as having completed the study after 60 (+/- 3) days, unless consent withdrawal or death occurs first. - Interim analysis will be permitted as described in the statistical section 8. - The final analysis will be conducted once the last subject completes the day 60 visit or withdraws from the study.
